Bryce Clayton receives Award of Excellence

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Waterloo Architecture graduate, Bryce Clayton, received the Award of Excellence for the 2017 Edmonton Urban Design Awards in the category Student Projects. Bryce's Thesis, 53 North: Tactical Infrastructure in Edmonton, explores creating a new design tool whereby the intrinsic values of snow can be utilized to create winter public spaces to temporarily occupy the urban void.  A new structure is proposed where City groups will act as coordinators sanctioning land parcels for urban interventions using the snow on each site and that cleared by the municipal workers, sculpted into basic forms.  When used in combination, the forms create protective, desirable micro-climates which inject program and activity into the formerly vacant lots, introducing positive winter activity into the realm of daily life in Edmonton.  

Congratulations, Bryce!
